newbie here, so any help is greatly appreciated…I’m just getting started with a Sainsmart genmitsu 3800 pro. I can do some basic carvings, but I’m trying to create a box using the easel box app, but the parts don’t fit together. They’re 2/8th of an inch too big to fit together. Also, the depth (z axis) is going almost 3/8th of an inch too deep (which ruins the box top groove cut out).
In candle, I have the X,Y & Z axis all set to 800, and I do not currently have digital calipers, but I took a board and marked off inch marks with a ruler. When I put my drill bit on 1 mark and jog the machine 1 inch to the right, it moves exactly 1 inch. Same for the Y and Z axis. So I thought my machine was well calibrated, but when it goes to carve something, obviously it’s well off.
Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong? thanks!
